Hi guys!

Friday before the Contest I put up a fullsize Loop for 40m in the attic.
Unfortunately it was too long, but had an SWR minimum on 20m. Testing a
little on Friday night, I heard P40W QRP 579 and worked him second call,
so I decided to do a part time single band effort with the new antenna
between helping my YL (DL6BCF)with ACCESS-programming (She was on the
other Computer in the Network - I hope this doesn't make it Multi-OP!),
going to the cinema and to a birthday party as well as sleeping long...

I was on the radio approximately 19 1/2 hours doing only S&P. Condx were
great, 20 never closed and lots of West Coast during the night. The
Cluster never helped me but I left it on anyway and put a few spots into

By the way, does anybody know what NZ4/W4UE is? Worked him on Sunday night
before the end of the contest.

So here's my score:

DL1EFD Single OP/Single Band 20m/Low Power/Assisted

RIG: Icom IC730, 100W
ANT: Loop abt 40m under the roof (abt 12m above ground level)

Operating time 19.5hrs

342 QSOs, 347pts (1.89P/Q), 258 Prefixes making it 166.926 points

73, hope to cu in Region 1 Fieldday 7/8 June from DL0UP/p
